Canada's anti-election-meddling panel will look into domestic threats as well as foreign interference during this fall's campaign.

But the government officials tasked with probing attempts to subvert Canada's free and fair elections will require all members of the panel to sign off before informing the public of an incident.

That's because the panel sees its power to go public as a last resort, and would prefer that journalists and civil society organizations keep citizens informed through debunking conspiracy theories or exposing fake social media accounts before disinformation spreads too far.
